Employ obfuscated SSH connection

Obfuscated SSH handshake is a technique which allows to hide the fact that SSH protocol is used from various network monitoring systems. The technique encrypts the whole SSH handshake (which is normally transmitted in plain until the key material is negotiated), preventing the intermediaries from identifying the connection as running over SSH protocol.

It is essential that both SSH parties (client and server) agree to use obfuscated handshake. It is not possible for an obfuscating client to connect to a non-obfuscating server, and vice versa.

To switch on obfuscated handshake mode, set ObfuscateHandshake property to true. You can provide an optional password to the ObfuscationPassword property, which will allow parties to negotiate only if they both use the same password.
